Protecting the parks is not as easy as some may believe and there are dangers there as anywhere. For the time you spent patrolling the parks and keeping them safe, you are a hero. It has now been 79 years since your death and you have not been forgotten.

God Bless and may you forever Rest in Peace, Brother.
